Goshen Green Farm is a local farm and market focused on building community through food, art, and education.
Owner, Susan Hillary, started the farm in 2010 and opened the market and food truck in August 2020 during the pandemic to provide outdoor eating and a small market. What makes Goshen Green Farm different? It is owned and run primarily by women and is focused on art, yoga and outdoor living.
The greenhouse and farm market offer freshly picked organic produce and herbs which are grown using permaculture techniques and raised beds. They offer products including teas, herbs, hot sauces, candy, creams, honey, and maple syrup. Weekly CSA (community sponsored agriculture) baskets brimming with freshly picked produce are also available.
In addition to shopping the market, guests are encouraged to come eat, explore, and enjoy the property. The food truck offers brunch, including fresh pasta prepared by our Tuscan chef Enrico. Yoga on the farm with Kelly Kamm is offered Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10-11.
